Are you tired of working from home? The Birmingham Coworking Collective has the answer if you’re looking for a change of scenery.
The collective made is made up of seven coworking spaces—Worx, Forge, Innovation Depot, MAKEbhm, Practice Works, The Hub and REV’s very own SocialVenture. It’s also the Global Workspace Association’s first local chapter, according to Kim Lee, Forge founder and CEO.
During the pandemic, the collective launched its passport—a way for those interested in coworking to check out all seven facilities for free within a two week period.
Something that adds to each space, according to Ben Wieseman, REV’s Director of Catalytic Development and collective member.

The Big Pitch presented by PNC was essentially our own little version of Shark Tank. And a lot of your favorite local businesses that participated in this competition now have active retail storefronts that you can go check out. Let’s start with some of our finalists that are based in the City of Birmingham and see what they’ve been up to!
